Uncovering family history as we go -- new North Italy (Fiume Veneto) itinerary needed!

Jump to last reply

My mom and her two sisters are coming to England to visit me and we are all flying to Italy in search of their father's home soil but there was a lot of confusion in the process, trying to figure out exactly where his "home" was, as he came to Canada in the late 1920s. So after many phone calls to distant relatives, the truth of my grandfather's origins have finally been uncovered. We had very little information other than that my grandfather was born in Fiume, Italy and came to Canada when he was 11. As some of you know, Fiume was then taken over many times by various countries and has finally settled in Croatia.
HOWEVER, we have finally discovered that he was born and lived in Fiume Veneto, not Fiume, which is still firmly located on Italian soil in the province of Friuli-Venezia. Whew. Okay, now we have that settled, what do we do with our 5 days?!

We're flying in to Venice on the morning of 4 October and departing Venice on 9 October. Not a lot of time - 5 nights. I was thinking 2 nights in Venice and now I'm not really sure where to go - or how to get there - next. I know Fiume Veneto is a smallish village near Pordenone -- does anyone know of any hotels/farms/B&Bs in the area? What about trains/buses from Venice? I've been trying to use the SITA site to see if there are any buses to FV, but am not having any luck.
Any advice on this region is GREATLY appreciated!

Thank you!
